CONDITIONS OF SALE 

1. Any bid which is merely a nominal or fractional advance may 
be rejected by the auctioneer, if, in his judgment, such bid would be 
likely to affect the sale injuriously. 

2. The highest bidder shall be the buyer, and if any dispute arise 
between two or more bidders, the auctioneer shall either decide the same 
or put up for re-sale the lot so in dispute. 

3. Payment shall be made of all or such part of the purchase 
money as may be required, and the names and addresses of the pur- 
chasers shall be given immediately on the sale of every lot, in default 
of which the lot so purchased shall be immediately put up again and 
re-sold. 

Payment of that part of the purchase money not made at the 
time of sale shall be made within ten days thereafter, in default of 
which the undersigned may either continue to hold the lots at the 
risk of the purchaser and take such action as may be necessary for 
the enforcement of the sale, or may at public or private sale, and 
without other than this notice, re-sell the lots for the benefit of such 
purchaser, and the deficiency (if any) arising from such re-sale shall 
be a charge against such purchaser. 

4. Delivery of any purchase will be made only upon payment

senting the bill of purchase. 

Delivery may be made, at the discretion of the Association, of 
any purchase during the session of the sale at which it was sold. 

5. Shipping, boxing or wrapping of purchases is a business in 
which the Association is in no wise engaged, and will not be performed 



by the Association for purchasers. The Association will, however, 
afford to purchasers every facility for employing at current and 
reasonable rates carriers and packers ; doing so, however, without any 
assumption of responsibility on its part for the acts and charges of 
the parties engaged for such service. ■ 

6. Storage of any purchase shall be at the sole risk of the pur- 
chaser. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneer's hammer, and 
thereafter, while the Association will exercise due caution in caring 
for and delivering such purchase, it will not hold itself responsible if 
such purchase be lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed. 

Storage charges will be made upon all purchases not removed 
within ten days from the date of the sale thereof. 

7. Guarantee is not made either by the owner or the Association 
of the correctness of the description, genuineness or authenticity of any 
lot, and no sale will be set aside on account of any incorrectness, 
error of cataloguing, or any imperfection not noted. Every lot is 
on public exhibition one or more days prior to its sale, after which 
it is sold "as is" and without recourse. 

The Association exercises great care to catalogue every lot cor- 
rectly, and will give consideration to the opinion of any trustworthy 
expert to the effect that any lot has been incorrectly catalogued, and, 
in its judgment, may either sell the lot as catalogued or make mention 
of the opinion of such expert, who thereby would become responsible 
for such damage as might result were his opinion without proper 
foundation.

81— GREY TWILIGHT 

Height, 30 inches; length, 40 inches 

Harbor waters supply the foreground, their gentle motion giving curi-

from a fading sky — shadows from the sails, hoisted or partly lowered, 
of working-boats of dark and heavy hulls, which lie in the middle dis- 
tance and shoreward, before a mass of houses already in twilight grey, 
along the shore-line. In the gloaming appears a white wisp of steam 
from a tender, and in the sky glows a single planet, the early evening 
star.

ADOLPHE SCHREYER 

German: 1828—1899 

157— ARABIAN HORSEMEN 

Height, 32 inches; width, 26 inches 

In a wild, rough and treeless land, the herbage yellow and brown with 
touches of green, three mounted Arabs are portrayed under a green- 
blue sky ; one in the foreground, on a white charger and holding a pen- 
nant, and two with their long guns riding forward in the middle dis- 
tance. 

Signed at the lower left, Ad. Schreyer. 

Owner: Estate of Charles G. Roebling deceased. 



JOSEPH CLAUDE BAIL 

French: 1862— 

158— MAKING PICKLES 

Height, 36!/2 inches; width, 29 inches 

A most complete and satisfying example of the justly celebrated work 
of Joseph Bail. A young French housewife with scarlet bodice, volumin- 
ous yellow-white apron and white, lace-trimmed morning cap, stands in 
full-length in the middle of the composition holding a large glass vessel 
from the mouth of which she is pouring vinegar into a glass jar filled 
with pickles. The accessories are a table, at right, a stool on which the 
pickle jar is placed and a brass vessel, on the floor at left. On the 
extreme left a window is indicated by which the figure is illuminated 
and the spacious room is agreeably lighted. 

Signed at the lower left, Bail, Joseph. 

From the collection of the late Julius E. French, Cleveland, Ohio. 



HEXRI JOSEPH HARPIGNIES 

French: 1819—1916 

159— LANDSCAPE 

Height, 29 inches; length, 39l/> inches 

Two groups of detached trees, sparse of foliage, grow in rough grass- 
covered land sloping from either side toward a broad, rude path in 
the foreground leading to an active middle-distance stream. The trees 
at left are scraggly and short, those on the right rise above the picture 
limits, and in the background, beyond the stream, are densely wooded 
hills and a valley, gilded with sunshine and in transparent shadow. 

Signed at the lower left, H. Harpignies, 1909. 

Owner: Estate of Charles G. Roebeing deceased. 



MME. MARIE DIETERLE 

French: 1860— 

160— COWS IN MEADOW AND STREAM 

Height, 31 inches; length, 40 inches 

From the left cows brown and black, tawny and white, have descended 
a hillside between dense growths of trees and bush and wild flowers, 
and come to a shallow stream in the foreground, which a white cow and 
a fulvous calf have entered to drink, — all of them carefully studied and 
with vivid expression. In the background to right, meadows and dis- 
tant hills. 

Signed at the lower left, Marie Dieterle. 

Owner: Estate of Charles G. Roebling deceased. 



PAUL JEAN CHARLES CLAYS 

Belgian: 1819—1900 

161— DUTCH FISHING BOATS 

Height, 29 1 / 4 inches; length, 4314 inches 

A sturdy broad-beamed vessel with sails all up is seen, in the left 
centre, slowly moving through the harbor waters with two rowboats 
following closely in the wake, while on the shore, at the right, are a 
windmill and some buildings. Stretching across the canvas are the 
low-lying shores that enclose the harbor, and overhead the sky showing 
clouds of white and gray is diversified by spaces of tempered blue. 

Signed at the lower right, P. J. Clays. 

Collection Robert F. Cutting, New York, 1892. 

From the collection of a prominent New York Private Collector now 
deceased. 



JULIAN ALDEN WEIR, P.N.A. 

American: 1852—1919 

162— LENGTHENING SHADOWS 

Height, 21% inches; length, 25% inches 

At a gentle incline a single-track gray wagon-road curves into the fore- 
ground, between low hills whose thick green grass grows to the very 
edges of the wheel tracks. Above the crests of the green hills green 
trees stand forth against a gray-blue and white sky, a white farmhouse 
appearing between them, and all in a glow of sunshine, which, emanat- 
ing from behind the observer, the nearer foreground being shaded, 
spreads elongating shadows up the lighted hillsides. 

Signed at the lower left, J. Alden Weir, 1887. 

From the collection of Mrs. F. S. Smithers, Nezv York. 



WILLIAM ANDERSON COFFIN, N.A. 

American: 1855 — 

163— CLEARING AFTER A THUNDERSHOWER 

Height, 25 inches; length, 30 inches 

Above a wide stretch of rolling country with meadows, harvest fields, 
trees and a road leading over the hillsides past a farmhouse, on the left 
in the middle distance, rises a high sky of broken clouds, dark and 
threatening as the storm passes to the left, with gray and white in 
other portions. Through rifts in the clouds where patches of brilliant 
blue are seen the sun shines on the distant country producing an 
effective contrast. This landscape is notable for the harmonious unity 
of diverse features and for the effective rendering of a fleeting phase of 
Nature's changes. 

Signed at the lower right, Wm. A. Coffin. 

Purchased from the artist. 

From the collection of the late John G. Holmes, Pittsburgh, 
Pennsylvania. 

In the permanent collection of the Metropolitan Museum, where two pictures 
represent the art of William A. Coffin, one is his celebrated "The Rain," which took 
the Webb Prize at the Society of American Artists, New York. 



In the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum are also two pictures by 
Mr. Coffin, one of which is "A Thundershower" (25 inches by 30 inches, the same 
size as the picture in this sale). 



FREDERICK BALLARD WILLIAMS, N.A. 

American: 1871 — 

164— VERMONT VALLEY 

Height, 28 inches; length, 36 inches 

From a high point in the Green Mountain State the spectator looks 
across the dense tree-tops and the open spaces of a wooded valley, lying 
under a sky of active clouds, white before a storm-cloud coming from 
the right. The broken green foreground, with a gray stone fence, 
mounts on the right to a wood-edge of dense trees. 

Signed at the lower left, Fred'k Ballard Williams. 

From the collection of Mrs. F. S. Smithers, New York. 



PAUL DOUGHERTY, N.A. 

American: 1877 — 

165— THE BREAKER 

Height, 36 inches; length, 48 inches 

Under a gray sky tinged with mauve, the sky-line high on the canvas, 
a heavy sea is moving, its motion forward toward the spectator and the 
left. Low in the foreground is the surface of rocks, crossing the pic- 
ture, rugged, brown, irregular. Toward them a huge sea rolls and just 
before them plunges into a deep crevasse, to burst upward in a tre- 
mendous mass of foam, a brilliant white between the green oncoming 
water and the dark rocks. 

Signed at the lower right, Paul Dougherty. 

From the collection of Mrs. F. S. Smithers, New York.

LOUIS LOEB, N.A. 

American: 1866—1909 

166— JOYOUS LIFE 

Height, 32 inches; length, 62 inches 

A composition of a dozen figures in an open woodland landscape, the 
background a broad hilltop over which but little is seen of a blue sky 
with white clouds. On a green and flowery slope in the foreground, 
eight nymph-like maidens in light draperies and semi-nude dance gaily, 
joyously, happily, hand in hand, a glow of sunlight from the right 
warming their smiling faces. Other maidens recline in cool shadows 
beside a brook. Seated against a tree, a nude male figure with the 
pipes of Pan. 

Signed at the lower left, Copyright 1902 by Louis Loeb. 

From the collection of Mrs. F. S. Smithers, New York. 



JOSEF ISRAELS 

Dutch: 1824—1911 

167— THE SHOAL FISHER 

Height, 78 inches; width, 55 inches 

A full-length, life-size figure of a fisherman, with trousers rolled up, 
moving forward in shallow waters as he guides with both hands a scoop 
net. The gray waters of the sea fill the composition to a point near the 
top of the canvas where the horizon is overhung by a gray sky. The 
fine, well-studied action of the figure and the intentness of the expres- 
sion of the typical old fisherman together with the rendering of the 
environment unite to produce a notable example of the work of the 
Dutch master. 

Signed at the lower right, Josef Israels, and dated, 1883. 

Purchased by the late owner in the Holland Department of Fine Arts, 
World's Columbian Exposition, Chicago, 1894. 

From the collection of a prominent New York Private Collector now 
deceased.
